BIRMINGHAM – Under-fire West Indies captain Jason Holder has urged his players not to lose confidence despite their embarrassing innings defeat inside three days in the day/night opening Test at Edgbaston.

The Caribbean side were rolled over twice on Saturday’s Day 3, losing 19 wickets to plummet to an innings and 209-run loss.

With the team coming under heavy criticism from nearly all quarters, Holder said his charges needed to continue believing in their ability to turn their fortunes around.

“Obviously, the guys are disappointed. We got beat within three days and we just weren’t up to scratch,” Holder told the media. (CMC)
